The Maine quitclaim deed without covenant is used to convey property to a buyer from a seller with no guarantee or warranty whatsoever. This means the buyer is purchasing only whatever interest the seller may or may not have in the property being sold. These types of deeds are occasionally used between family members or from a person to his or her trust. However, it is always wise to check on the title to make sure there aren’t any new interests recorded in the property. Like all deeds in Maine, this deed must be acknowledged by a notary and filed with the Registry of Deeds in the County in which the property is located

Laws – Title 33, § 161

How to Write

Step 1 – Three file types for the Maine Quit Claim Deed Without Covenant are available for download. You may download one or all versions at your discretion by selecting one of the buttons (“PDF,” “ODT,” and “Word”) on the right below the image. All file types will contain the exact same language and requirements.

Step 2 – The area bearing the heading “Prepared By,” requires a disclosure on the Identity and Address of the individual entering this information. That is, enter your Full Name on the blank line bearing the label “Name.” Then, report your Street Address, State, and Zip Code on the spaces bearing the label “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code.”

Step 3 – The words “After Recording Return To” serve to note the Name and Address the Maine County Registry of Deeds should send the filed materials once it has been recorded on the books. You will need to provide this information on the lines bearing the labels “Name,” “Address,” “State,” and “Zip Code.” This information must remain an up-to-date and valid Address where the interested party wishes to receive the returned paperwork of this filing.

Step 4 – The centerpiece of the Maine Quit Claim Deed Without Covenant will provide the necessary language for the conveyance of the concerned parcel of land or Property in the paragraph occupying most of this page. To begin, locate the space provided beneath the sub-heading “State of Maine.” Report the County where the Property being conveyed is actually found or located.

Step 5 – The central paragraph will need the Dollar Sum Amount necessary for the Property Conveyance to occur to be reported on the blank space preceding the “$” sign. This should be written out words. Then on the space inside the parentheses with the “$” sign enter the numerical value of the Dollar Sum being exchanged for this conveyance of Property.

Step 6 – The individual who will receive the Dollar Sum being paid for the conveyance of Property must be indicated on the blank space just after the term “…paid to.” Then, enter the word “Grantor” to solidify this individual’s role.

Step 7 – The Grantor’s Address is also required for this form to be accepted. The Street Address for the Grantor must be reported on the next space provided. This will be adjacent to the words “residing at” and will be followed by the words “County of.” After “County of,” you must enter the County of the Grantor’s residence, then on the space adjacent to the term “City of,” you must report the City of the Grantor’s Residence. The final Address component will be the Grantor’s State and this must be submitted on the blank space after “State of.”

Step 8 – The next party to be defined will be the Grantee. This individual’s Name should be submitted on the space following the statement “hereby quitclaims to.” This person’s role should also be solidified by writing out the exact term “Grantee” on the next available space.

Step 9 – The Complete Street Address of the Grantee must also be submitted on this form. This information will be spread across the next few blank spaces in this paragraph. On the space following where you entered the word “Grantee,” submit the Street Address of the Grantee. The County of the Grantee’s Address must be submitted on the blank space located after the term “County of.” Similarly, you must report the City of the Grantee’s Address on the next available space. Finally, the Grantee’s State must be submitted on the blank space “State of.”

Step 10 – The last space in this paragraph will need a confirmation of the County where the Property of interest is located. Submit this information on the space preceding the phrase “Maine to-wit.”

Step 11 – There will be several blank lines at the end of the central paragraph. Here, you will need to submit the Address of the Property, the Legal Description documented on the Deed, and any other descriptive items such as Plot Numbers. Make sure the information being submitted is wholly accurate and compliant with the Legal Description as it appears on the record books.

Step 12 – Now that all the required information has been submitted on this form, each Grantor named in this document must Sign his or her Name and submit several items in the presence of a Notary Public. To Sign the Maine Quit Claim Deed Without Covenant, the Grantor must locate the line carrying the label “Grantor’s Signature.” Below the Signature, the Printed Name of the Grantor must be submitted. Finally, the complete Address where the Grantor legally resides must be provided across the lines bearing the labels “Address” and “City, State & Zip.” The Maine Quit Claim Deed Without Covenant comes with two columns for the Grantor(s) to perform these actions. You may add an additional column if you wish or simply attach a document with the Signature and required items for additional Grantors.

Step 13 – The area below the Signature section is purely for the use of the Notary Public witnessing and confirming this Signing by notarizing it. Only the Notary may provide the County, Parties in Attendance, and Date. This will be confirmed by the notarization process where he or she provides the Notary Public Identification, Commission Expiration Date, and Notary Seal.

Step 14 – The Maine Quit Claim Deed Without Covenant must be submitted to the Maine County Registry of Deeds where the Property being conveyed is located. This requires you to contact the Maine County Registry of Deeds of the applicable County directly since each County will have its own Fees and Guidelines.
